Production of Apple iPhone 12 mini halted

It is widely reported that Apple has decided to stop the production of the Apple iPhone 12 mini.

This comes as reports have emerged claiming that the smartphone sales has been rather lower than expected compared to other iPhones.

TrendForce reports that the 12 mini is no longer in production, and has therefore reached the end of its life cycle although the smartphone is still available for purchase on Apple’s website and will continue to sold until stocks are exhausted.

Apple is expected to focus on driving sales of the three non-mini models in the iPhone 12s series in view of the fact that the iPhone 12 mini (which reached End-of-Life ahead of time in 2Q21) suffered disappointing sales performances compared to other models in the iPhone 12 family.” reports TrendForce in their website.

In case you are wondering, the iPhone 12 mini is the most affordable member of the iPhone 12.

It is also the smallest of the series witha 5.4 inch display and retails at RM3,399.

The phone is also available recently in purple, but if you have been contemplating to buy the iPhone 12 mini, you may want to speed up your purchase if the news proves to be true.
